Doug's Windows Tweaks And Tips - Fix Windows XP Help

FixWinXPHelp.exe - Repairs Windows XP Help and Support after running Easy Cleaner
Visual Basic 6 EXE version 6/02/2002
Doug Knox

This small VB 6 utility will restore the associations for Windows XP Help and Support that Easy Cleaner removes. Other registry "cleaners" can cause the same problem.

NOTE: This utility will not correct issues that are accompanied by an error message.  The indications for the use of this script are that Help and Support will not open, there is no error message, just a brief change of the mouse cursor to an hourglass.

To use: Download the FixWinXPHelp.zip file and save it to your hard drive. Double-click the FixWinXPHelp.zip file and extract FixWinXPHelp.exe to your hard disk.  To run the EXE just double click it, there is no installer.  You will be notified whether the program can fix your Help and Support issue, or not. 

Operating Systems: Windows XP only.  Requires VB 6 Runtime Libraries, included in Windows XP.

Based on original work by MS-MVP Bill James for Windows ME.
